  1. Hello everyone!!! It feels like I have been gone forever. I've been busy with my new job and running around after my two year old I thought I would drop by and post a link to a video of my Tandanus Catfish - Mr Tinky in his tank that I got him for xmas. I took this video in Feb this year. It's hard for me to decorate his tank cause he wrecks everything I put in there so it's pretty plain looking. I'm thinking of getting a background for the tank to make it look a bit more interesting.
  2. I have lots of driftwood for them. I will try the cucumber idea. That's a great tip. I will post an update on how it goes
  3. Thanks for the reply Liz. Yes, I think feeding at night is the only option. Hopefully they are getting their fair share of food
  4. I keep 2 x Bristlenoses in my GF tank, but I think they are getting limited food as the GF eat their algae discs. I bought large discs so they cant fit into their mouths but as soon as they go soft, I am sure they gobble them up. I have a lid on my tank so placing a divider in the tank every night for feeding time isn't an option. Just wondering if anyone here expereinces the same thing and has come up with some solutions to ensure their BN are getting enough food.
  5. Your tank looks great. I like 'Wood 2' the best
  6. What type of sand is that in the last shot? I noticed that the sand doesn't bother your snails. I've heard from some people that snails don't like a particular grade/type of sand. Just curious to know which one you use as it's snail friendly
  7. Those are very nice pics. Your clown fish is gorgeous
  8. Those are great pics. I'm surprised that you were able to take pics of UDC. I never even saw mine. I would forget he was even in the tank until I did my water changes.
  9. What foods do you feed him? I only feed my bristlenoses algae pellets, but with large plecos, do they need more meaty type of foods?
  10. Plecos are so stunning. Yours is a beauty...Congrats!
  11. Your floating plants look great! Do you have any problems with them flying around due to the filter current?
  12. Our Australian Native fish have to compete with wild godfish, hence the decline in our native fish populations in some areas of Australia
  13. Some filters come with an adjustment to regulate the flow. If it doesn't you can try placing an ornament or plant infront of the filter outake
  14. You photos make me miss my neons. I had to find them a home as I had to downgrade the number of tanks in the house. Your tank setup looks great!
  15. I had teras with cories and had no problems. What breed of tetra where they? I had neons.
  16. It wont kill you but if they get you hard it is very painful. I have read on the net that this guy caught one in the wild and got stung. He had to go to hospital to get injected with painkillers because the pain was so bad. When they sting you, they only do so out of self defense and it's something that the fish has to deliberately want to do as they stiffen up their dorsal fin and swipe you. Even though Mr. Tinky is tame, I am always careful, and let him know I'm there before I put my hand in so he knows it's me. Mr. Tinky is about 35cm at the moment
  17. I have had him for about two years now and apparently they can live up to 40 years in the wild He will probably out live me and become a family heirloom I wont put any other fish in there with him as he will grow out of that tank in a few years so I want to keep as much room in there for him. Also because he has been on his own since I separated him from a school of white clouds, in fear he would eat them, he might attack other fish as tandanus are solitary fish when they mature. They have a poisonous spine along their dorsal fin which can do a bit of damage
  18. He is about 35cm at the moment but they grow up to 50cm in general, but there have been posts on other forums of some growing up to 60cm. I will have to get a 6ft for him in about 4-5 years time
  19. I keep my apple snail in my GF tank and I have a floating breeding box in their. Every couple of days I pop him in there and feed him greens & algae pellets. When he has finished he is able to get out himself. I used to feed my apple snails turtle pellets due to the calcium in them. It's suppose to help with hardening their shells. Does anyone know if it really does help?
  20. I bought Mr. Tinky at the LFS, but he wasn't that big when I first got him. I originally kept him in a 2FT tank with some 'white clouds' and he was smaller than they were. Here is his baby pic: I have a baby tandanus at the moment that I am trying to find a home for if you are interested Annette PVC Piping is great, especially for large fish as it is inexpensive and no sharp nasty edges. I was able to get 3 ornaments out of one pipe which only cost me $9. I will be decorating the PVC piping soon and posting my results in the DIY section
  21. He is a "Tandanus Tandanus Catfish" They are native to Australia. He is very tame. Despite the poisonous spine they have on there dorsal fin, he has never stung me, and lets me pet and hand feed him. Here is video of me hand feeding him:
  22. Sorry for the delay. I had trouble with my camera. Here is a pic of the new tank: and here is Mr. Tinky playing "peek a boo" and this is him enjoying his new tank: I have some video footage as well. I am hoping to post that asap as soon as I upload it
  23. Awwww! He looks so tiny and cute! I think the name 'Rusty' really suits him. How big do rainbow sharks get to?
